And this show is no exception.....rather, it might be a prime example to point to as to why 1989 was such a year of late-era greatness for the GD.
Set 1 is fairly typical for this era, although the "Foolish Heart" opener is unusual, and does a great job kicking things off to a good start. Then, in less than an hour, the band is off the stage -- it's as if they know what coming up after the break, and want to get going fast.
Sure enough, it's a fantastic "Estimated Prophet" that starts things off. I always love the Brent-era versions of this song. His harmonies just bring out all the greatness that got left on the table when Donna was still in the mix. But wait -- what's this? Yep, one of only a half-dozen "Dark Stars" performed that entire decade (four of which were in 1989, if I needed more ammo to prove my point about the greatness of that year). And after a half-hour of psychedelic noodling, everything resolves into a wonderful "The Wheel'.
Mic dropped. Walk off stage. Be happy.
But nope -- there's more: "All Along the Watchtower" and "Stella Blue" for a perfect cap to the evening, with NFA ending it all off.
Really, just get a copy of this.
Subject: It doesn't get much better ...
Rest of the show is pretty solid; DS puts it over the top. Check out the long NFA -- it's not 12 minutes and change, but it's about 7:30 with a much longer Jerry solo than is typical for that time. Also, the band comes back for the encore with Jerry noodling in time with the crowd's chanting. Cool stuff.

I think maybe the setlist should read:
Dark Star ->
...they fell out of Dark Star as soon as Jerry hit the last word of the lyrics on the 2nd verse.
Eh... it all rolls into one.
